A company, led by a large Progressive Conservative Party donor and political appointee, that took out full-page advertisements against striking teachers' unions in February has been found to have violated Ontario's Elections Finances Act.

The advertisements were published at a time where all four major teachers' unions in the province were engaged in escalating job action as bargaining talks with the government stalled.

The advertisements varied slightly in each publication, but they all delivered a similar message opposing the strikes and appearing to support the provincial government.
